Lee Westwood to defend title in South Africa


Lee Westwood will headline the 12-man invitational field for this year's Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa, aiming for a third successive victory at the event, which starts on 29 November.

The world No 4 Westwood, who won the event in 2010 by eight shots and in 2011 by two, will try to become the first man to win the tournament three years in a row.

Westwood has been joined in the field by six of his victorious European Ryder Cup team-mates –the British duo Paul Lawrie and Justin Rose, Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts, Sweden's Peter Hanson, German Martin Kaymer and Italy's Francesco Molinari.
